Peter Wohlfelder’s latest book release featuring “Alcatraz Escapees in the Bahamas: Updated Edition” (published by AuthorHouse) is set to receive a new marketing campaign this 2017. This biography sheds a new light on the subject of the Alcatraz escapees, offering evidence that “the three escapees started a new life on a subtropical island.”

Wohlfelder discovered this as a result of living in the Bahamas as a missionary. “This has been confirmed by a retired FBI agent and an Asian criminal-photo expert at the Cable Beach Police Station in Nassau,” he shares.

Three men escaped from Alcatraz on June 11, 1962. Freddie Pinder’s mom died in May of 1962. He was a child at the time. He went to live with his great aunt in June 1962. About a month later, three mysterious men came by boat and lived in the bush behind his great aunt’s farm. They came daily to where Freddie lived for water and food.

In “Alcatraz Escapees in the Bahamas,” readers will learn about the daily lives of these men who look just like the mug shots of the three escapees, “of which we have affidavits.” Readers will discover the story of how a young Bahamian boy went fishing with Alcatraz escapee, alleged Clarence Anglin, on this island.

“Within this book, you will be comparing photos of this man to the mugshot of Clarence Anglin.” The discourse that Pinder and Wohlfelder had with the U.S. Marshals Service, FBI agents, a retired FBI agent and a criminal-photo expert is also disclosed.

“Discover how these three escapees went from living as prisoners in Alcatraz, to living as free men on a lush subtropical island,” the author adds.
